Creatureliness, and Creativity: The Human Place in the Natural World
The Society for Continental Philosophy and Theology’s 2012 conference takes today’s ecological crises as its point of departure. We invite theological and philosophical contributions informed by continental traditions such as phenomenology, hermeneutics, eco-feminism, post-structuralism, post-colonial studies, deconstruction, and social and deep ecology that help us understand and implement a sustainable future together. Authors may submit papers that address ecological issues head on, as well as those that tackle philosophical and theological themes that underlie these issues.
Keynote Speakers include:
Bruce Foltz (Eckerd College)
Janet Martin Soskice (Cambridge University)
Norman Wirzba (Duke Divinity School
January 15th, 2012
Only complete papers with a maximum of 3,000 words will be accepted. Papers should be prepared for blind review and sent to Bruce Ellis Benson.
Conference Date & Location:
April 20-22, 2012. Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles
